Welcome to the Colorado Rockies



Kyle Kendrick and the Rockies come to Philly, but we won't face Kendrick - Kendrick got his second win of the year on May 27 vs Cincinnati


The Phillies and Rockies split a series out in Colorado earlier in the month, and now the Rockies visit Philly for a 3-game series at CBP.

The Phillies have ebbed back to a bad team in the last week, they got swept by the Mets and didn't look like the same team that went on that 6-game winning streak just a short while ago.

The Phils are now 19-30 on the season - if we project that out, the Phillies could be on there way to a 90 loss season. A website called fangraphs.com  has the team finishing last in the MLB at 66-96 with their computer projections for the rest of the season.

Clearly, this team is not on the same page, and the job isn't getting done on the field with the configuration that is on the field. It's going to be a very long season for Phillies fans.

What can you do in this type of situation? As a fan, you can just appreciate the game itself, view it as a chance to see other team's players and just continue to look for positives in a bad situation. That being said, I wouldn't rush out to the ballpark and support an organization for putting this product on the field. There are far too many ways to spend your hard earned money besides supporting a Phillies ownership group that has lost it's baseball way.
